Anglers continue to find good action for striped bass. Early mornings and the evening hours are most productive. Tom Frey has found success while trolling at depths of 70 to 80 feet in 100 feet of water. He likes baits that are chartreuse in color. Another lucky angler used a crankbait to pull a 27-pounder out of Boulder Harbor. Anchovies and lures have also been catching the fish. Smallmouth bass are hanging off cliff walls and taking drop shot rigs at depths of about 20 to 25 feet.
